Working at the UvA

Support for international staff

If you're moving to the Netherlands to work at the University of Amsterdam, there are lots of things to arrange, from residence permits and insurance, to housing and healthcare. We're here to help!

Staff Immigration Office

Our main task is to help arrange all the paperwork, including work permits, residence permits, insurance and registering with local authorities. As soon as your Faculty contacts us, we will start guiding you through the immigration process. (Please note: If you're coming to work for the Faculty of Science, the Faculty's HR department provides these services.)

Intake interview

As soon as you arrive in the Netherlands, we'll arrange an intake interview. During the intake, we can help you register with your local municipality, open a bank account and arrange health insurance.
